Editors' Review

A Better Finder Rename for Mac helps you keep your files organized by adding custom extensions, numbers, or other identifying text to the file name. Through its intuitive interface, you can quickly add files you want to rename and then choose the customization settings that suit your purposes.


Tons of options: Options for adjusting file names through this program are almost endless. They include inserting text and sequence numbers, truncation, date and time insertion, or even adding path components, tags, and more. You can also specify where to insert the chosen item or what to replace, so all file names come out exactly the way you want them to.

Instant preview: On one side of the working window in this program, you can see the original names of the files you've added. On the other side, you'll see a preview of the new file names, and these update each time you make an adjustment. That way, you can tweak the file names for as long as you want to get them right without making any permanent changes until you're sure you have what you want.


Trial limitations: The trial version of this software only allows you to work in batches of up to ten files at a time. While this is great for giving you a feel for the interface and how the options work, it doesn't let you test out how well the program can handle large batches of files, which may be more of a concern to some users than others.

Bottom Line

A Better Finder Rename is a flexible and convenient tool for renaming files and keeping your computer organized. It offers all of the options you need to customize your file names fully, and it runs quickly and smoothly, overall. You can use the trial version indefinitely as long as you're OK with working in batches of ten or fewer files, and unlocking the full version costs $19.95.
